Noganosh Lake itself is not familiar to me. but I use that topo map for the Magnetewan. I have travelled the lakes all around there and it is great canoeing. the Magnetewan beyond the rail bridge out of Big Deep Bay is free of boats other than small fishing boats with small outboards that can be portaged.
Trout Lake is beautiful, as is the entire north Mag down to the highway. the fishing has been quite good in the past.
I go in at Nascoot and work my way up to the Mag through Horseshoe Lake, Lone Tree Lake or I go around through Bolger and come out just below Canal Rapids. North of there, I have portaged in to some of the lakes that link up to Nagonosh.
It is beautiful country. frozen Crown Land and a waterway park, I believe. good luck.

I have been going up to the Mag for over twenty years, several times a year and never tire of it.
Initially, I launched at Harris Lake Marina, which is still a good option. there are a fair number of cottages on Harris Lake but the first portage solves that issue.
But mostly I launch at Naiscoot Marina, just a quick left (west) off of the 400 (old 69). Tim and Rosy run the place and it makes for great piece of mind. they have a good feel for the fishing, as well.
East along Naiscoot Lake and up in to a series of lakes that brings you to Big Deep Bay and then on to the South Mag. The portage and then up to the Tee in The Mag, as it is known. From there you can check out Trout Lake or head downstream. All of the waterfalls on the North Mag have good fishing. Mountain Chute, StovePipe Thirty Dollar Rapids, the whole river is good. By my measure, any way. It feeds us as we paddle.
After Miner's Lake, the south side of the river is Reserve. but there is a small island in the middle of the river, half a day from the highway, that is just perfect.
you have a lot of options up there.
cheers

if you have the time and inclination, you can carry on the Mag out in to Georgian Bay, down the coast and back up the Naiscoot River (no portages save on short one right at the end) to the Marina. From the highway out in to the bay and back up the river is about three days, two if you push hard. of course, waves can be a factor but you can paddle amongst the little islands on the coast. There is a coast guard light house part way. it is very beautiful and makes for a great sunset on Georgian Bay. Inner Head Island is a magical place to camp. just shy of the Naiscoot River Delta. You can also carry on east on Naiscoot Lake and head north up to Bolger and come out at the east end of Trout Lake by the bottom of Canal Rapids. enjoy.
